I first made this sandwich after seeing it on Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers and it instantly became one of our favourites. The heat of the chilli and the coolness of the feta with its warmed edges is amazing. You can serve the block of feta whole and spread spoonfuls onto warm bread or divide between warmed rolls. The colours are so bright against the white feta.
Serves 2 Adults
1/2 head of garlic
1 red chilli
1 tbsp olive oil
2 spring onions
- Peel and finely chop the garlic. Chop the chilli (take the seeds out if you want less heat). Heat the olive oil in a medium hot pan then cook the garlic and chilli for about 4 minutes until they are fragrant and soft. Add the feta, either as a whole block or in slice and warm for another 2-3 minutes.
- Roughly chop the coriander then add to the pan along with the chopped spring onion. Gently toss the chopped ingredients over the feta then squeeze over the juice of half a lemon.
- Spoon the feta and chilli mixture into warmed rolls or serve in a dish to be eaten with a large sharing loaf.
